I don't have an answer for your question, but I do have a recommendation. Get this memory kit instead.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231135

It's $165 and a MBP compatible 2x2gb kit. I believe the MBP memory speed is only 667MHz anyway, although the CPU runs at 800MHz FSB.
That is correct. The MacBooks (all of them, Pro and non-Pro, Core, Core 2, Core 2 Santa Rosa) all use DDR2-667 PC5300 SO-DIMMs. So that is what you are looking for. No absolute need to find MBP specific RAM, the Intel Chipset really helps with that.
